NESOP Welcomes New Staff Members

NESOP is pleased to announce three new additions to our Main Office Staff!

Cameron MacMartin is the new Registrar / Assistant to the Academic Director.

As a 2012 Graduate of the NESOP Full-Time Professional Photography Program, possessing extensive management experience as well as having had direct experience working in the Registrar’s Office of another post-secondary institution, Cameron has a unique combination of skills that make her perfect for this position.  Additionally, after working as a tour manager for several years with Cirque du Soleil, Cameron will undoubtedly be well-prepared to juggle the many tasks at hand!

Cameron will be available to respond to Registrar & Academic-related requests Tuesday through Friday, each week.


Nicolette Pinnock started with us on June 25th as the new Director of Financial Aid.

Nicolette has twelve years experience in financial aid, working for institutions such as the Bryman Institute, Berklee College of Music, ITT Tech and Bay State College.  She spent some time working with Mark prior to his departure, ensuring a smooth transition for students and administration, and we are happy to have her on board!

Nicolette will be available Monday through Friday, each week.


Mark Giannini is NESOP’s new Director of Admissions & Recruiting.

Mark comes to NESOP with a graduate degree in Integrated Marketing Communication and over ten years experience in admissions and recruiting with the Boston Architectural Center, where he not only had success in growing enrollment and improving retention, but was also the individual solely responsible for the marketing and recruiting to launch their Distance Master of Architecture program.  He has experience identifying and targeting new student markets and has worked at and managed others within all levels of the enrollment spectrum.

Mark will be in the office Monday through Friday working toward exceeding our enrollment goals.


Orianna Reardon: Featured Emerging Artist | Panopticon Gallery

Orianna Reardon: Featured Emerging Artist | Panopticon Gallery

2012 NESOP grad Orianna Reardon has been selected as Panopticon Gallery’s next Featured Emerging Artist.

“Orianna has been working on a series of self-portraits and experimenting with both large and small format cameras, including Polaroid and the new Impossible Project film.

Reardon’s images are dark, mysterious and in some instances very revealing. Photographs from the artist immersed in the landscape are juxtaposed with staged images in a studio setting. Just when you think you know what she is doing, she changes direction with a click of the shutter.”  – Panopticon Gallery

Orianna will have her photos displayed at Panopticon Gallery from July 12 – September 11th. Opening reception will be held Thursday, July 12 from 5:30 – 7:30 PM – stop by and meet her!

2011 NESOP Grad Katie Kaizer Published in N Magazine, June

2011 NESOP alum Katie Kaizer recently had her photos published in two articles appearing in N Magazine’s June 2012 Issue, Nantucket, MA.

“Katie spent the month of March in Uganda, volunteering her photography to small organizations that are dramatically changing the lives of women and children who have been devastated by decades of violence, disease, and poverty. “I was trying to give these women a platform, a way to tell their story… they were so happy,” she says, holding back tears.”
